Stacie from Yellow Spool shares a tutorial over at Somewhat showing how to turn a basic tote into a convertible tote bag backpack. She reworks the straps so they can be attached in two configuations. One will make a tote, the other a simple back pack. She leather she used to lengthen the straps gives it a modern edge. Go to Somewhat Simple to get her tute.
